Aim

This course will enable signalling designers to specify signalling equipment on signalling plans, based upon a client specification.  The second week of the course will enable signalling designers to create control tables for signalled routes and points, using standard control tables for Route Relay Interlockings

Key Features

  • Course fully up to date to reflect current requirements
  • The course concentrates on understanding of underlying rules for equipment specification
  • Technical jargon is explained in clear English terms
  • Extensive practical exercise covering a wide variety of lifelike situations.
  • Underpinning Knowledge matched to IRSE Licence requirements
  • Also provides preparation for module 2 of the IRSE examination
  • Course fully up to date to reflect current requirements
  • The course concentrates on understanding of interlocking functionality, as well as “filling in the boxes”
  • The delegate will benefit from experimentation on our demonstration interlockings
  • Technical jargon is explained in clear English terms
  • Also provides preparation for module 3 of the IRSE examination

Course Outcomes

On successful completion of this course, the delegate will be able to:

  • Interpret customer requirements for signalling projects
  • Perform headway calculations for non-stopping trains
  • Position signals on the plan
  • Specify types of signal and route indicator
  • Specify signal identities
  • Specify signalled routes required and their characteristics
  • Specify Train Protection and Warning Systems
  • Specify any additional trap points required
  • Specify normal lie and identity of points
  • Specify train detection areas and identities
  • Demonstrate an understanding of interlocking principles
  • Complete control tables for signalled routes and points

Assessment and Certification

Achievement of the Course Outcomes will be assessed by a theory assessment of signalling layout principles and of interlocking principles and control table completion.

The delegate’s achievement of the Course Outcomes will be confirmed by a certificate which will be forwarded to the nominated client contact following the course.

Pre-Requisites

A well prepared delegate is expected to be able to describe the basic functionality of signals, points and track circuits. They will also be expected to be able to interpret signalling plans and show a basic understanding of signalling principles for UK main line signalling installations.

The newly defined format for SSI control tables is specifically covered by our new SSI Control Tables course.
